One Thousand Gifts, a Dare to live fully right where you are, is a book I had heard of so many times I was indeed very curious to read it. At first I thought it to be a women book only but it is not so.
You should also not judge a book by its cover but I must say I felt an attraction to it immediately. I went through the different chapters, each beginning with a relevant quote and I found myself drawn to Ann Voskamps' writings.
Based on a friend's dare, that to record one thousand of God's gifts or blessings, this is a challenge that obviously changed the author's life in more ways than one.
With care and much grace, Ann Voskamp bares her soul, good times and bad ones allowing us to follow our own path towards a joyful Christian Life.
This is a tome every woman should have the opportunity to read, and one that you will keep next to you by the bedside. It is truly inspiring, yet simple in its concept but also provoking, rich in faith and love for God.
You cannot but be moved by its message and men or women will find it a treasure. Ann Voskamps' journey is one of discovery she shares humbly with all of us!
This is a book you will reach out for time and time again, the perfect gift for a loved one, young or old!
I give it 4 stars!
